The Penthouse on First Hill has long been considered one of Seattle’s most prestigious luxury high-rise residences, and an exhaustive renovation by the city’s leading architects and interior designers has made it even more dazzling. This exceptional home, encompassing the entire 32nd floor of Seattle’s coveted First Hill Plaza, was just listed by Kitty Hughes and Terry Allen of Coldwell Banker Bain for $15,885,000.
The three-year renovation stripped the one-of-a-kind unit down to the studs and rebuilt it with an exquisite level of fit and finish, including Herringbone wood floors, extensive designer wallcoverings, and plush draperies framing-floor-to ceiling windows—all the better to enjoy the astounding views. The penthouse’s prominent perch, occupying the highest elevation of any of Seattle’s residential highrise properties, affords 360-degree views of the entire city, spanning the glittering skyline, the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, the Space Needle, Lakes Union and Washington, downtown Bellevue, and Mount Rainier.
Nearly every inch of the nearly 7,000 square feet is oriented to those vistas. Entire walls of glass dress the formal living room, the dining room enjoys full-height windows that wrap all the way around the corner, and the gourmet kitchen complements its two waterfall islands, sleek cabinetry, and professional appliances with a view of city lights, deep blue water, and majestic mountains.
A stylish fireplace punctuates the living space, offering a warm respite for a crisp evening and, at the far end of the home, a handsome library/sitting room casts a handsome profile. Outside, the huge covered terrace offers unlimited opportunities for private alfresco dining and outdoor leisure in the sky.
Enter the private hallway to the bedrooms and you are greeted by beautifully thought out walls that create the ultimate gallery space—the perfect place to showcase your art collection. The master suite is as plush as a five-star resort, offering city, water, and sunset views from bed and another expansive wall of windows in the exquisite master bath that affords views from anywhere in the room, including the soaker tub and massive walk-in shower.
First Hill Plaza is located just minutes from downtown Seattle and boasts an amazing Walk Score of 95, putting it within an easy stroll of top restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques. The building also offers an abundance of luxury amenities, including a 24-hour concierge, a doorman and valet, an indoor pool, a spa, a tennis court, and a fitness center.
